    Thanks to everyone who helped answer my question of what to do when my hen had not hatched her eggs last thursday, the 15 (it was 28 days on that day).

    We decided to leave her on the eggs for a bit longer and this evening she came out to eat with a poult following her. [​IMG]

    We didn't try to candle the eggs as mentioned, cause of all the rain he got hit with (too much mud to get to nest), but I guess there was at least one egg that was good.

    I'll try to keep you updated of what happens with the rest.

    BTW: this is my first baby turkey. well, heck, both tom and hen are my first turkeys.
